[MUD-Dev] Mass Creation OLC Functions (idea from Elder Games)

After posting about my shadowrun mud idea, I started thinking about it a
little more. How about an OLC function that creates the foundation for an
area. Uses recursion and whatnot to create the rooms and exits then
populate the area with mobjects and descriptions based on the area type.

prompt> create area desert west

This would create a desert-type area to the west. 

Why stop there? Why not have an input file of say a 20x20 grid and create
an entire world.

I'll use a 5x5 grid as example

D D D D D     D = desert
D D F F F     F = forest
D F F F F     U = urban
F U U F F
F U U U F 

Anyone following me? You could even use an algorithm to generate the world
grid for you so you can have a new world with each boot or whatever.
